miles, tho dimensions varying uccord

Mr. Myers haB been In Ireland since

Ho paid a visit to the earl of Ran

where a fine Penn collection la pre

TO DO HONOR TO
SOMEHOW or other, Cupid never
seems half so busy as at St.
Valentine's day. Then the littlo
god of lovo holds full Bway. How
Cupid came to be connected with tho
idea of St. Valentine's day is ruthor
vague. Thero haB been a current be
lief for agcB that on the fourteenth of
February tho birds choose their mates;
possibly that is the origin of tho
St. Valentine lived in the third cen
tury, and ever since that period his
birthday, the fourteonth of February,
has been named in his honor.
Formerly it was the custom on SL
Valentino's eve to drop an equal num
ber of names of young men and wom
en in a box. The maiden whoso name
was drawn was presumed to bo tho
young man's valentine. This was con
sidered an omen predicting tho happy
termination of a love affair.
Tho old-fashioned valentines were
usually "homo-made," with tho verses
written especially for the person they
were intended for and conveyed many
real affectionate sentiments. Though
the present valentines aro factory
made, and many thousands can bo
bought of similar kind, suroly the
maidon of today welcomes tho verses
printed on lace paper aud decorated
with hearts, or forget-me-nots, with
much the same enthusiasm as did the
girl of long ago, for a valentine Is
a message fragrant with love, or
friendship, and causes many a heart
throb. The. day which haa an entrancing
charm, especially for young people and
children, ia a favorite occasion on
which to entertain friends'. A Valen
tino's party could be called a "hearty
party," because hearts play such a
prominent part In the decorations and
"All the world loves a lover." So
perhaps that is the reason valentine
affairs are so popular. With little
expense one can decorate a table
for a valentine luncheon, or dinner,
which will call forth expressions of
aurprlse and admiration.
Send your invitations on heart
shaped cards, or postal card valen
tines. It it is to be a children's par
ty, buy a supply of candy mottoes aud
hide them in dlfforent places about
stho room, then allow 20 minutes for a
morry bunt. Award a prize, some
thing that is in keeping with the
event, to the ono who collects the
Another way to entertain tho young
sters Is to have a largo heart of pa
per with a small red heart In the
center. Blindfold each child In turn
and Bee who can pin a paper arrow
nearest tho heart
A unlquo way to chooso partners
for tho supper is made by having an
Immense heart of cardboard covered
in jred crepe paper. Tho girls take
turns in standing in front of the
heart, whllo tho boyB march in front
of them to the music of-somo lively
song. When the player stops sudden
ly the girl who Is framed In tho heart
becomes the partner of the youth in
front of nor.
Red and white have always been the
acceptablo colors for decorating a Val
entino tablo, but latterly thoro has
been a'strong indication towards pink.,
Cupids, hearts, bows and arrowa, are
the most appropriate decorations for
this holiday. "All the world loves a
lover," so tho more hearts and Cupids
that adorn the table, the prettier the
effect will me.
The tablo illustrated had two ruf
flcB of crepo paper gathered around
tho edgo of tho tablo n a soft back
ground for tho drapery of hearts cut
out of red crepo pnper In graduating
sizes; these hearts wero strung on
red baby ribbon. Tho candlo Bhadea
wero of whlto and rod heartB pasted
on. Tho nut boxes wero In tho form
of hearts decorated with small enrd
board Cupids. Tho place cards are
four inch hearts set In tho comer of
a gilded card. Tho favors nro three
Inch hcurtB of whlto with a small
red heart in tho ccntor. These
hearts aro fastened to a glided
stock and finished with a bow of rod
ribbon or crepo paper.
Tho centerpiece la suspended from
tho chandelier and Is made of three
fourteen inch hearts tied together with
red baby ribbon. This forms sort
of a Jack Horner bag, which can be
used to hold valentines or souven
irs. Strings of smaller hearts hang
from the center. Tho largo hearts
have an arrow pierced through thorn.
For tho menu carry out tho "heart
idea." The sandwiches enn bo cut
heart shaped with a cooklo cutter.
Tho salad can be decorated with
hearts cut out of pickled beets. The
ico cream can bo served heart shaped
and decorated with candy hearts. A
pretty cako has candy mottoes placod
all over tho surfaco of the cako bo
foro tho Icing Is hard. Each ono has
to read their motto aloud. Two rings
are baked in tho cako. The partlcB re
ceiving tho rings aro supposed to be
tho noxt married.
Decorations well worth tho effort,
and different from any other table,
had for its main decoration a char
iot placed in the center of the table.
This chariot is easily made of card
board and covered with crepe paper,
or a littlo toy wagon can be used,
either glided or coverod with frlngedj
paper. Tho chariot Is trimmed either
with small roBes or carnations. A.
small doll is dressed aa Cupid with'
sash and wings mado of crepo paper;
of tulle, flittered with gold. Tho dolL

other festive occasion offers so many

crepo paper Is milled around the ta

year. Tho favors nro small envelopes
containing hearts made of silk or pa

some aro hard. All kinds of hearts
which are supposed to bo tho heart

Tho decorations for a valentine ta
ble can bo mado with littlo oxpenso,
and as tho work progresses you will
find yourself originating many unique
ideas. Every hostess alms to havo
her affair Just a littlo bit different
than previous ones, and when your
guests seo the results of your efforts
with oxclaraatlons of admiration, rot
will feel amply repaid.
WHY THE MEAL WAS HALTED
Nothing Seriously Wrong, but Old Gen

Tho grandson's wlfo was very anxious

Women Are Constantly Being Restored to
Health by Lydia E. Pinkham's
Worth mountains of gold " says one woman. Another
says, "I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound for all the other medicines for women in the
world." Still another writes, M I should like to have the
merits of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound thrown
on the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women could
read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills."
We could fill a newspapor ten times the size of this with such quo
tations taken from the letters we have received from grateful women
whose health has been restored and suffering banished by Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Why has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound accomplished
such a universal success ? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on
doing its glorious work among the sick women of tho world for more
than 80 years ?
Simply and surely because of its sterling worth. Tho reason no
other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim
ply because thero is no other medicine so good for women's ills.
Here are two letters that just came to the writer's desk only two
